Karzai meets with Japanese leaders

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is on a five-day visit to Japan, where he met Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan, right in photo above, and other Japanese leaders about aid and investment for Afghanistan. Karzai also met with Japanese Emperor Akihito at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Thursday. Last November, Japan announced it would provide approximately $5 billion over the next five years to Afghanistan and has been one of the largest donors to Afghanistan.
